We made sure to include experiences from real couples who decided to forgo traditional wedding planning and have an epic adventure together instead. If you don’t know whether you should plan a traditional wedding or an elopement, then see if you agree with any of these reasons to elope. If you do, then you may want to consider planning an elopement!

1.You Want to Focus on You Two

It’s ok if you’re thinking about eloping because you want to enjoy the moment together and be completely present. It’s also no surprise that this is the number one reason on our list. More and more couples crave to have an authentic experience where they can soak in every moment. Deciding to elope, means deciding how you’re going to celebrate your wedding day together, despite what anyone else wants or recommends.

2.You Want Something Intimate and Meaningful

You deserve a wedding day that is intimate and meaningful. You should be able to look back on your wedding day and remember the little details you incorporated that will most certainly be forgotten or unnoticed at a bigger wedding.

3.Elopements Are Less Stressful

Planning an elopement allows you to still put your beautiful wedding inspiration Pinterest board to use and also saves you from becoming bridezilla or fighting with your partner from all the stress of the long list of things that still need to get done.

4.You Want to Save Money

If you find yourself pushing back some important to-dos on your list together because of your wedding day expenses, then maybe it’s time to elope instead.

5.Looking for Something Different

One thing to remember is that no elopement is the same, and there is no correct formula for planning your elopement because, at the end of the day, it is your elopement. Imagine sharing your first dance as the sun sets over the mountain tops, or cutting a mini cake together on a picnic blanket with your best friend and popping a champagne bottle. The limit does not exist.
